The opera was very well presented with excellent music, beautiful costumes, and great humor. Highly recommended! It is especially a good program for families with children. The drawback was the language barrier.

We thought the opera was great. We didn't take advantage of the photo opp as we thought we would although my husband did have the quick back massage. Had excellent second row seats. Tea was very good. We had to get to the theater and back on our own - only tickets were booked in advance so be sure to have the theater info in Chinese characters for your taxi driver as well as your hotel's for the ride back.

the best part was to use the opera costume and the makeup.

Loved it! The theater is quite small which gives great view of the show regardless of where you sit. We really enjoyed the diversity of the performances. From singers, acrobats, musiciens, puppets, and of course the changing faces, it has it all. Even the comic play was really funny, though we did not understand it fully since it was in Chinese, but that tells how good the actors were. It was interesting to see that the majority of the customers were Chinese, which confirmed the traditional characters of the show - not just a touristy event. Tea is provided through the evening and we munched on the provided snacks of various beans. Both my husband and I had a blast and we recommend it to anyone visiting in Chengdu.
